Keywords: , , ,

This is a detailed examination of the electro-mechanical and elastic coupling that occurs in the scanning probe microscopy of electro-active materials. This research is useful to detecting, imaging and understanding the orientation of nanoscale electromechanical anisotropies in material. This method has been applied to piezo electric and ferro electric thin films as well as biological samples
